Multiple Houses On Fire In Buffalo Overnight
It has been a busy start to Tuesday in the City of Buffalo for firefighters.
Multiple houses were reported to have been on fire.
According to a report from Twitter:
The storms that ripped through the Western New York area brought down power lines and tree limbs as rain pounded the area just after midnight Tuesday.
The fire radio/scanner was buzzing with activity as firefighters were battling all three blazes. At one point, command on the scene reported that they had encountered a bad hydrant. The crews worked hard to keep the houses that had caught fire from the initial blaze, under control.
This comes just a day after the 11 anniversary of the death of two Buffalo firefighters. Buffalo Firefighters Lt. Charles 'Chip' McCarthy and firefighter Jonathan Croom died while battling a fire inside a deli on Genesee Street.
